Looking for an opportunity travel, explore and volunteer abroad in the summer of 2019? Well how about running your own trip for Beacon of Hope Uganda and join us for FREE!

Recruit at least 10 people across your university, work or social network and join us in Uganda for free in 2019 summer vacation.

Beacon of Hope Uganda is looking for ambitious, confident and determined university students to lead their own group volunteer trip to one of our summer projects in Uganda 2019.

We feel that university students are perfectly positioned to spread the word about what Beacon of Hope Uganda do and have the network of contacts to organize their own group trip.

To qualify for the Summer Team Leader Position, you will need to recruit at least 10 people to your group (there is no upper limit). You can run your trip at whatever time of year you wish but generally speaking the summer months are the most convenient.

The minimum duration for the trip is 2 weeks and you can go away for up to 8 weeks. We can be flexible with the start dates.

You are responsible for recruiting, preparing and leading your group. Once you have been selected as a BoHU University Team Leader you will have a skype meeting with your BoHU mentor.

We will give you all the training and support you need to start promoting your trip. Your BoHU mentor is also there to advise and help you throughout the process. Here is a guide to the Team Leader process –

  • Pick a trip date
  • Organize an information evening
  • Confirm the trip
  • Fundraise
  • Collect group info
  • Lead your trip to Uganda

BoHU University Team Leaders receive a whole host of benefits, but most appealing has to be the financial incentives. Depending on what type of trip you opt for and how many people you sign up you could receive all of your accommodation, meals and local transport included – and in some cases you can win a completely free trip including flights/visas!

You can also use your BoHU University Team Leader experience to boost your CV. BoHU will happily act as a reference for you.

If you feel you have what it takes to be a BoHU Team Leader then please contact us: info@beaconofhopeug.org. If we feel you are suitable for the role then we will be in touch and send you an info pack on how to go about recruiting the group for your trip!
